Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson for October 27, 1989
Calvin: I've got to write a report for school. Hobbes: What's your topic? Calvin: Bats. Can you imagine anything more stupid? Heck, I don't know anything about bats! How am I supposed to write a report on a subject I know nothing about?! It's impossible! Hobbes: I suppose research is out of the question. Calvin: Oh, like I'm going to learn about bats and then write a report?! Give me a break!
